Annie's quilt

Yay!!! I have a finish.  This is Annie's quilt I started in piecing in December, started quilting in March and now it's done.  I can't  believe it's done.  I'm soooo happy.

It's so big (queen-sized) that it's hard to photo.  If I get two tall sons in the same place at the same time, I might get them to hold it up, but for now we tried laying it flat and climbing a ladder..



and then using the fence...




Fabrics are a real mix - the beautiful birds are a Michael Miller fabric called Wing Song, there's a bit of Joel Dewbury (the white birds on blue and red), some Oakshott and some Kaffe Fassett shot plains and all sorts of other bits and pieces. Handquilted with perle cottons and I used wool wadding.



This is my favourite so far.

  2. That's brilliant!! To think you've done a queen sized one just since December! Going great guns :) I really really like the zigzag triangle bits, especially combined with the almost spirally-ness. And maybe need to get some hooks and a pole or something for showcasing such tall ones :)

    1. Funnily enough, since I decided I was okay with being really slow I seem to have got faster! Go figure.

    I just am in love with that bird fabric, red on aqua. I have a leeeeetle bit of it and now am reluctant to use it for fear of using it up... heehee such a fabric hoarder.

    1. I have to admit I scoured ebay for it, but all used up now, every last scrap. And fabric hoarding is good for the soul.
